Awealth of information about the school, its governance and its institutions is held in our Archive, which in 2014 was expanded by the incorporation of the Kipling Society Library. The Haileybury Archive is open to researchers by prior appointment with the College archivists.
The Archives department is currently shut whilst the school is operating remotely.
A valuable resource
Our archives provide a rich resource for pupils, staff and historians alike and include everything from photographs of staff, pupils and sports teams, old uniforms, paintings, minutes of meetings, books, manuscripts and even film material, some of which has now been digitised.
Kipling Society Library
Haileybury has enjoyed a long association with Rudyard Kipling, who was a pupil at the United Services College (USC) and who was taught by Cormell Price, a former Haileybury housemaster (Colvin).
In 2014, the Kipling Society entrusted a substantial part of its Library to the trust of Haileybury College.
East India College
Although Haileybury in terms of its central buildings dates back to the time of the East India College, the vast majority of the archive today covers the period after Haileybury was founded as a College in its own right in 1862.
Viewing the archives
The archives are housed in our Haileybury Archive building. They can be consulted by appointment with our archivists, Toby Parker, or Heather Edwards-Hedley on 01992 706200.
Before making contact, please help us by letting us know the objectives of your research so that we can know how best to help. Any research undertaken in the Archive will be supervised by one of our archivists and access is at the discretion of the College and may in some circumstances be refused.
